Have you recovered from Christmas and the New Year’s celebrations yet? 🙂 So what’s been going on; other than a return to work that is? Still work. It pays for the nice things in life doesn’t it.
The turning of the year somehow reminds me of that new exercise book feeling I’d get at school. You know, the tired but well loved book would be completed and would be assigned to history. The new one’s first page was pristine: clean and empty for your scrawling. Did you take special care on this first page? Funny, but I did although that resolve never lasted to the third page.
Unusually, school is on my mind at the moment. The Xmas holidays are over and term starts once again. In our house, our little boy will be starting full time this coming week. I really feel for him and I wonder who is the more nervous: the parents or the child? He seems keen and full of excitement for a new environment.
The parents? Well, I didn’t mind primary per say, but in the main I wasn’t keen. As to secondary, well, I feel little point in dwelling in the past – particularly on a time I found less than enjoyable. I didn’t have it bad – not like some kids did. Whatever happens, I hope Wee Man is happy in what he decides to do…. unless it’s football. I really can’t stand sport. 😉 But what about you, did you enjoy school or was it a means to an end?
ps: After last week’s talk about no resolutions: I have now started to try and cut down on the amount of chocolate I’m putting away. It’s that or a whole new wardrobe! Mind you, I wonder if I’ve left it too late for the sales. Still: “diet hard with a vengeance.” 🙂
